Doing business with The Leaders Bank has been a phenomenal experience. We worked with larger banks in the past, but it became a problem when bank after bank was bought and our rep would change, and they didn’t understand our business. We called Chas Hall at Leaders because he stayed in touch with us over the years before we became a customer, and he’s a great guy to deal with. They’re a smaller bank but their attention to detail is outstanding, and they’re extremely easy to do business with.
With the advent of Covid-19, Leaders immediately guided us through the process to submit a PPP loan application to aid our company and payroll, and we were amazed to receive a check a few days later. They kept us informed at every step, and afterward helped us navigate through loan forgiveness.
As our company adapts to becoming a PPE supplier of essential safety products during the pandemic, it is assuring to know our bank is standing by us.

Leaders Bank provided a competitive proposal which addressed our current banking needs. More importantly, Leaders delivered on the proposal with quick approval, excellent communication throughout the process, and superb personal commitment of their staff to get things done on time.

Leaders Bank has consistently delivered on their promise of prompt, professional service. As we were previously with a larger bank, we have been impressed with the level of attention and personal service provided by Leaders. This has been a great partnership for our company.

Multi Print and Digital LLC
As someone who has had first-hand experience with quite a few financial institutions over the years, Leaders Bank really stands out. When I recently closed on a business loan, the team I worked with were clearly experts in their areas and with me every step of the way of this new endeavor. They were so quick to respond to my questions, and genuinely supportive through the whole process. I am impressed with their level of customer service that truly goes above and beyond.

The ROC Group
I can’t say enough about how much we at ROC Group appreciate our relationship with Leaders Bank. We have been a loyal and grateful customer for over 9 years. The bank helped us grow from a small start-up to a larger, mature firm. And, all the while, we have enjoyed experienced advice, top-notch service and always-personal contact from some of the most pleasant people in the banking industry.

High Alpine Capital
Leaders Bank was able to close quickly on a real estate transaction where time was of the essence. Knowing the Bank will be able to accommodate a rapidly changing real estate market gives our company confidence the deal will close as anticipated. A high level of communication is important when information is required quickly and we appreciate their professionalism. I look forward to working together on our next transaction.

Central Recycling Center
When our existing bank failed to deliver on their promise to finance our building acquisition, we met with Leaders Bank. Leaders listened to our needs and presented a great financing solution.
Most importantly, they delivered everything that was promised. It’s great to work with a bank that you can trust!
- Larry Brosten, Member
We were first introduced to Leaders Bank in 2008 when they provided financing for a strategic acquisition for two out-of-state companies. We decided to move the relationship to another bank in 2011, but during that time our Relationship Manager, as well as key executive management, had always been available to discuss issues and opportunities for the company, especially while experiencing rapid growth. Their flexibility to meet our ongoing needs made it easier to operate and help make critical decisions that affected our company.
That's why we decided to return to Leaders Bank in 2014. They maintained contact during our absence and we soon realized their responsiveness and consistent, high-quality service was something we truly missed. We're glad we came back. The transition went smoothly and we're working with the same people we have known for many years.

Villa Capital Properties
Villa Capital Partners owns and operates multi-family apartment complexes in the Chicago area. We first partnered with Leaders Bank in 2012, and have completed a number of transactions with them since then. Leaders Bank has products and rates that suit our needs, but, frankly, so do many other banks today.
The thing that separates Leaders Bank is their ability to deliver. In every transaction we’ve done with them, they have approved terms consistent with their original proposal letters and have closed on time.
This high level of consistency and professionalism is very important to us. We have great peace of mind with Leaders Bank, knowing that they will deliver what they promise.

Ada Metal Products
Our company has been in business for 70 years. Ada Metal Products was built by our father on the foundation of developing personal relationships with our customers to provide the highest quality product at a competitive price that are delivered on time. As a family-owned business, we pride ourselves on what our father established and we continue that tradition today.
Working with an independently-owned community bank is very important to us because we want our financial services partner to share a similar mission. After banking with the same financial institution for more than 40 years, we had the opportunity to meet with a Leaders Bank executive in 2014. We don’t take changing banks lightly, especially after such a long relationship, but felt compelled to take a very close look at what Leaders bank had to offer.
We decided to move our relationship because we found Leaders bank to be responsive, competitive and in tune with our company’s culture and needs. Since moving, all of our interactions with the bank have been exactly how we hoped they would be, keeping with the expectations we developed when we first began talking with them. We’re glad we made the move and look forward to another long term, mutually beneficial relationship with Leaders Bank.

Tommy Pollina Landscape Company
Leaders Bank helped me to expand my company into a new location. They were helpful and structured a transaction that was both creative and beneficial for my business operations. I look forward to working with Leaders bank as we continue to grow our business. In times like these it is a pleasure to work with a bank that can work outside of the box and make decisions based upon all of the facts presented.
- Joseph Pollina, President
